There is a crisp clean feel of freshness as you remove your coat and outdoor wear and hang it on the sparkling curved chrome hallway coat hooks. You're also greeted by vibrant aqua floral clusters in the vase just ahead.

You note the deep navy blue fridge freezer and feel assured at the extent of the well catered appliances throughout the kitchen diner.
You admire the breakfast bar and complimenting high stools that you imagine your early morning breakfast being served on.

You pause and look to your right and see a well set dinning table with soft padded chairs and a dark-brown rich dining table with a lime green table run accompanied by cream table set mats.
You notice the warm flocked meadow yellow-leafed accented wallpaper flanked by the white cleanliness of the adjacent walls. The three patent mirrors surrounded in aqua frames reflect your pleasant smile and satisfaction as you pass them while slowly sliding open the double patin doors. As the soft silky curtains brush against your arms, you step out and hear the pleasant creak of the patio garden that is securely and privately surround by a deep brushed tree-branch screen that embodies the beauty of the outdoor space. You stroll over the length of the patio garden toward the shed where you note a barbecue stand as you pause for the exhilarating thought of smelling your favourite barbecued dish filling your nostrils with smells and flavours of outdoor cooking.
You step back inside and walk back toward the hallway and visit three double bedrooms where you meet warm cosy double beds bustling with feather filled duvets and pillows that invite your tiredness to put them to the test. The accented floral and striped wallpapered walls and beautifully contrasted roller blinds set your mood to the chill setting.
You step into the bathroom and meet nothing less than the sharp cleanliness and sparkle from the tiles to the vanity cabinet where a full cabinet length custom cut mirror reflects you longing gaze toward the shower area and past the glass shower screen.
You note the ornate glass speckled bathroom soap dispensers and tumblers set along with the cosy colourful towel sets.
You turn around and walk next door to the separate toilet and smile gladly that its separated so that your other guests could access without disturbing your greatly anticipated shower. You admire the limestone concealed shelving that meets the beautiful accented wallpaper of floral swirls that continue the inner calm theme that the rest of the amazing apartment has carried.
After storing your many bags and cases in the ample hallway cupboard you push it shut and head to the wine glass cabinet in the kitchen diner.
A father of three that lives for those memorable moments captured in the photo above.
I grew up in London and have lived there all my life despite having a Caribbean heritage. I went to a local school called Holloway School for Boys, then the local sixth form college and eventually graduated from University College London.
I now live in Spain in a beautiful town called Altea on the Costa Blanca and have just recently had our third baby boy.
Jude Frederick purchased this apartment in 2000
I first bought this property when I just started out in my career and have an inseparable attachment to it that I can only like to the attachment that I have to my family. This is the first apartment that my first baby daughter lived in with me and I absolutely love this apartment and will never let it go because I feel like it is a part of me and is a constant reminder of my beginnings to fatherhood and maturity.
The patio garden and the size of the kitchen-diner always gave me that feeling of closeness that I experienced with my new family when my baby daughter born. Many a barbecue and delicious dinner was cooked in these spaces and the warm close atmosphere of love and appreciation still lingers in those spaces to this very day!
